Who’s Afraid of Pinky Chai?


Check out what your biggest fear says about your personality —

ID-10073808

Spiders – You, cunning trend-setter, you…

You notice the small things about your environment and surroundings, allowing you to spot trends before they’re mainstream. You’ve got style, baby!ID-10070560

Ghosts – Ghouls and Guys, you’re confident AND ambitious..BOO-yah!

You’re strong and secure in your convictions (even in terms of ghosts, which many dismiss with disbelief). You are a bold leader that believes in their own abilities —  rock on!

Heights – “You know what I did last summer..” — you’re perceptive

If climbing ladders scares you, you probably have a hyper-sensitve nervous system. This means you’re more in-touch with what others are thinking or feeling than most. ID-10075457

Horror Films – You’re oozing with creative energy!

If fright flicks freak you out, that means that you have an extra high response to stress and a vivid imagination. Higher stress levels mean more stress hormones, which boosts energy level making you ghastly good at multi-tasking.

Snakes – You’re one smart (and adaptable) Halloween cookie!

You have a keen sense of survival and find you adapt easily to many different situations. This isn’t only useful when keeping an eye out for venomous snakes in the wild, but in the wilderness that is, your career, love life, etc… If danger is brewing you’re quick to spot it and sidestep it.

Tight Spaces – Wildly independent

You don’t like being confined. You push the limits past the boundaries that keep others held back. Your self-reliant attitude will get you out of “scary” situations and on the best (and most exciting) path possible for you. ID-10096105

Tantalizing Tea Facts

Tea is the 2nd most consumed beverage in the world with more than 3 billion cups being consumed every day across the world. It’s no wonder with its soothing aroma and the astounding array of health benefits it offers.

Tea is chock full of vitamins and other healthy components including vitamins B1, B2 and B6 along with potassium, manganese, folic acid and calcium. Below, are just a few of the health benefits from tea.

Tea Benefitstea

Black Tea

Main Benefit: Freshens Breath

Did you know that black tea is loaded with polyphenols, which fight plaque and cut back on bacteria growth in the mouth?

Weight loss and diabetes prevention are two added bonuses to drinking black tea, as well.

White Tea

Main Benefit: Promotes Weight Loss

Polyphenols are the active weight loss agent found in most teas. White tea is loaded with polyphenols, even more so than other types of tea because it is processed considerably less than most. In fact, the antioxidants in one cup of white tea equals the same amount you’d get by drinking 10 cups of apple juice.

This tea drink promotes a healthy, even skin tone. White tea is also linked to preventing colon cancer and other types of cancer, too.

Ginger Tea

Ginger Tea

Main Benefit: Relieves Headaches

Ginger tea is known to fight headaches, just as quickly as popping an aspirin. Ginger tea also helps soothe upset stomachs, too.

Passionflower Tea

Main Benefit: Lowers Anxiety

Passionflower tea contains the flavone chrysin which provides relief for those who suffer with obsessive thoughts (i.e. – anxiety).

Ginseng Tea

Main Benefit: Libido Booster

Ginseng tea offers a sexual boost for both men and women by increasing libido, fighting erectile dysfunction and raising sperm count in men.

Coffee drinkers are painfully aware of the crash and burn, halting side effects of drinking “Joe”. This happens because the caffeine in coffee immediately goes into our systems and hits it like a Mac truck giving us a short jolt and then, leaving as quickly as it came. Tea, however, contains antioxidants which slows the release of caffeine throughout your system allowing a longer “alert period” and lowering the risk of a crash.

Due to the fact that chai tea is my favorite drink on the planet and her namesake, it would be an utter travesty if I didn’t discuss my love of chai tea. It’s a love that runs deep. Everything about chai tea makes it the ultimate drink. From the warmth to the spicy aroma to the creamy texture to the multiple health benefits from partaking in this “drink of the gods” — it is truly a drink like no other.

Try this delicious homemade chai tea recipe for your sipping pleasure:
Pinky’s Recipe for Chai Tea

Ingredients

1 cinnamon stick
3 cups of water
6 whole cloves
6 whole cardamom pods
4 whole black peppercorns
1 (one inch) piece of ginger root (peeled and sliced)
2 black tea bags or 1 tablespoon of loose black tea
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 cup milk (low-fat dairy, soy or almond milk)

Combine water, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger and peppercorns into a pot and heat on stovetop until boiling. Cover and lower heat. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Return to heat and boil. After boiling, remove from heat and add tea bags. Cover and allow to steep for 5 more minutes. Strain out solids using a fine mesh sieve and transfer liquid back to the pot. Add milk and brown sugar and place over low heat for about a minute. Pour into mugs and serve.
